Share This Article:
Super Inuit’s debut EP sees the ambient musings of the duo’s first few singles morph into something more sophisticated, structured and tangible. Regret, memory and preservation are some of the lyrical themes running through this sharply focused project that isn’t afraid to explore the noisier, more dissonant and unnatural sides of electronic music.

Although these four songs aren’t the abstract sketches of Super Inuit’s previously released material, it’s not as if they’re shouty and full of hooks.
